Measuring Exercise Levels in Drosophila melanogaster Using the Rotating Exercise Quantification System (REQS) Louis P. Watanabe1, Nicole C. Riddle1 1Department of Biology, University of Alabama at Birmingham The Rotating Exercise Quantification System (REQS) can induce exercise in Drosophila melanogaster through rotation while simultaneously measuring the amount of activity performed by the animals. Here, we present a point-by-point protocol detailing how to measure activity levels of animals experiencing rotational exercise treatments using the REQS.
